Free Burn Philosophy

Yesterday I read an article written by Darla Baerg on the “pros” and “cons” of controlled fires in large forests.  With pine trees, the pine cones have a seed in them which is only activated by intense  heat.  This is a natural process in some areas in order to grow new trees.

We can relate to this in our own life wanting to avoid any and all discomfort, but by walking through these fires, not only to we have to lean totally on God, real growth comes from walking through those flames.  This is not punishment but for our own Good.

Psalms 66:12 reads “You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance.”
